'll lead off with ashley and then move to dan blommenthal. ashley? >> thank you. it's a blessing to be here this morning. thank you for coming. i have the very pleasurable, but challenging task because i have to summarize today the totality of asian responses to the developments described in some detail in the first panel. if i can do that, that's will be some sort of minor miracle and more mir rack -- miraculous because the chapters were not written by me, but three of my collaborators who for various reasons, because they are in not in the united states, could not be with us today. i'll take the best stab i can at trying to summarize how the asian region, particularly the strategic asian quadrants, everything from northeast asia to north asia. the key states along this belt have been responding to the kinds of kate increases that were described at some length and the great clarity in the first panel. the chapters that focus on this in the book constitute literally half the book. because they deal with extraordinary levels of detail and extraordinary levels of nuance, i urge you at some po
, if governor romney is suggesting we should start another war, he should say so. so rumors of war, dan. what the political strategy here or do you think there is one? >> obviously we are in a moment when everything barack obama says is related to his reelection. so it is with this. a key element of the obama reelection strategy has to do with perceived voter fatigue over wars, iraq and afghanistan. >> paul: tide of war are receding? >> exactly. first thing he said i ended the war in iraq. how he is binding down afghanistan. from that premise he is suggesting to people that mitt romney just might start up again because he is advised by the same people that got us into the war in iraq. >> paul: and a lot of people don't like the long years of war. how fair is the charge? >> i think people are ready to be responsive to that message. the problem is chaos adores vacuums and we are creating a vacuum in the middle east and iran. it is being created by president obama. mitt romney makes a good case. what we might end up in a war it's the policies of president obama in southeast asia and pakistani an

correspondent for "the washington post." dan. dan, i will begin with you. you guys have the poll of the day that show this split between where the race is nationally and where it is in the swing states. why do you think there's such a wide gap? that's a big gap. >> it is a big gap, chuck. the -- you know, the margin of error on that swing state sample is bigger. >> fair enough. >> and so that 11 points could be less than that. >> but has this been a pattern? >> you know, the swing state moves a little more dramatically because it's a small sample, but i think everything we even seen in the battleground states and individual polls shows president obama with pretty healthy leads, particularly in the big three, ohio, florida, and virginia. and that columbus dispatch poll, you know, nine points, we had it at -- >> seven or eight as well. >> and cbs had it at ten. more advertising, more campaigning, and think it's had an effect. >> it's funny. four years ago there were 15 states that barack obama and john mccain were advertising in. now it's down to nine. you know, so you're getting same amount
than dan gilligan. >> we have to make sure that the futures market is an honest market. >> as the president of the petroleum marketers association, he represents more than 8,000 retail and wholesale suppliers, everyone from home heating oil companies to gas station owners. when we talked to him in the summer of 2008, his members were getting blamed for gouging the public even though their costs had also gone through the roof. he told us the problem was in the commodities markets, which had been invaded by a new breed of investor. >> approximately 60% to 70% of the oil contracts in the futures markets are now held by speculative entities. not by companies that need oil, not by the airlines, not by the oil companies, but by investors that are looking to make money from their speculative positions. >> they don't actually take delivery of the oil. >> no, all they do is buy the paper and hope that they can sell it for more than they paid for it before they have to take delivery. >> so they're trying to make money on the market for oil. >> absolutely--on the volatility that e
showing in the first presidential debate. our white house correspondent dan lothian is in cleveland traveling with the president. saw a very different president once again today as opposed to the debate, dan. >> reporter: we really did. not only here in ohio where the president spoke during a heavy downpour, but on an earlier stop as well in virginia. the campaign says this is a deliberate attempt to counter some of what they believe were false claims made during the debate. this is the president that most people agree didn't show up on debate night. animated, forceful and taking shots at his gop opponent. >> governor romney said he'd get rid of planned parenthood funding. apparently this along with bid bird is driving the deficits. >> reporter: campaign rallies and presidential debates are two completely different events. but the contrast in body language and policy sales pitch is hard to overlook. zingers are back. >> now, my opponent has been trying to do a two-step and reposition and got an extreme makeover. governor romney was fact checked by his own campaign. >> reporter: and

for the must-reads, sara, yours first, what have you got? >> i like dan ball's piece in the "post," the take. where he puts some much-needed perspective around the last week. which is that we don't yet know what the effect of both the debate and the jobs numbers are going to be on this race. it's probably a week away before we see the true effect of these things. and oftentimes in politics, things are never as good as they seem and they're often not as bad as they seem. so sage, "washington post" dan ball had a good piece. >> let's move on to you, doug, what's yours? >> mine was a similar theme. it's a piece in the "huffington post" which puts the post debate hysteria in perspective. romney obviously had a good night. but it's not likely to change the dynamics in a lot of the swing states. i'm hoping it short of shakes some folks out of complacency among democrats who might have been lulled by the president's lead in the polls, because we don't know how it's going to come down. it will come down to the wire. >> anne, i've got to ask you to give me yours quickly. >> bhi my colleague at the "w
gum bell, brian williams, and dan rather, drum roll, katie couric chosen by the audience and there she is. you were at the ceremony last night. what did they do, they asked for a round of applause and then tell everybody-- >> like the old shows on tv where the meter goes and the needle goes, it's a fun time to be together. 25 years the media research center. a great organization, do a tremendous job and personally, i love barbara streisand, and people who need people are the luckiest people in the world. >> dave: and serious, remembering andrew breitbart, what a loss. >> a great blogger and jim has been way ahead on the blogging and independent stuff and he's taught me a lot. and i think this is the wave of the future, i really do, a way not only to hold the existing mainstream media accountable, but i think eventually
in henderson, nevada, gearing up for wednesday's debate. our white house correspondent dan lothian is over at the white house. he getting new information. what's the latest on his xaeb preparation, dan? >> reporter: campaign official telling me that the president began those practices last might after arriving in defense nevada and continued these rehearsals this morning in nevada as well. taking only a break this afternoon. one of the things that they are really working on is trying to get the president to be more concise and in his answers. you know, sometime it is president can be long winded and the campaign has admitted this and it is not the most effective way to deliver your message. so they are trying to get the president to answer these questions with very few words. he has a small team of adviser around him including david axelrod, former white house communications director anita dunn. and also brian, one of the president's economic adviser. they are not talking about some of the specifics, what's going on behind the scenes. one thing they are saying publicly is they are trying t
. and now the 1988 vice- presidential debate. dan quayle and lloyd bentsen of texas. the two vice presidential candidates were 25 years apart in age which provided one of the defining moments. the debate was held in omaha and was moderated by pbs's judy woodruff. >> on behalf of the commission on presidential debates, i am pleased to welcome you to this vice presidential debate. i'm judy woodruff of pbs' "macneil-lehrer news hour" and "frontline." my colleagues on the panel are -- john margolis of "the chicago tribune," tom brokaw of nbc news, and brit hume of abc news. the importance of tonight's debate is underscored by two facts. both george bush and michael dukakis said their selections of a running mate would reveal a lot about themselves. and based on the history since world war ii, there is almost a 50-50 chance that one of the two men here tonight will become president of the united states. the candidates are senator dan quayle, the republican nominee, and senator lloyd bentsen, the democratic nominee. [applause] >> for the next 90 minutes we will be questioning the candid
and there's also a moral issue there too, but thank you. >> thank you. >> so my name is terry dan says. i was in jerusalem in 1973 when the war broke out and all the european nations made a good point of saying we're not going to send any weapons to the middle east because we don't want to encourage the war that has just started. that sets up at the same time the russian were sending weapons to the syrians and egyptians. my concern is with the shiites and the sunnis. if iran gets an atomic of, the question is not that the egyptians will say we want the same toy. the point is that the egyptians, the sunnis, the saudi arabians are sunnis and the iranians are shiite. and most likely scenario is the surface in pakistan will send atomic arms to their sunni brothers in saudi arabia and in egypt. and you'll suddenly have -- you will have atomic arms all over. so i am aware of the dangers of israel, attacking iran and stop an atomic on. it seems to me the dangers of letting them get an atomic bomb, followed by the sunnis in saudi arabia and egypt is much greater. >> i agree with you. i would just

has a margin in the house i don't think that he can hold off the republicans against dan obama version of the deal. the believes are stronger than the used to be. i think that we have more leverage over members in the campaign finance issues and other things but i think obama going to the lamar alexander in the senate and there are some equivalence in the house, even if the democrats don't control both houses of congress he would have some leverage to go round the leadership and i suspect he wouldn't mind. he would feel that he is obliged to deal with him in 2013 if romney has lost but people see bipartisanship when it's a leadership negotiation and the other is picking off against the wishes of leadership but the premise on both of those is the rest of the personal relationship before that can occur and the investor pointed out a governor mitt romney will have those talents. i think now that the president obama knows that he has them he is just going to have to demonstrate them more and be more engaged. so the reality is this. the future weeks away from the real work story and i think

was making the point that bentsen destroyed dan quayle. it did not make a difference, but he destroyed him. i do not know. do one of you want to take a swing at it? >> there are two presidential debates after that one. i think it will be more watched by folks like us, who are interested in politics. the overall electorate will pay attention more to the presidential. i am not downplaying the importance of the vice- presidential, anything can make a difference. but it would be surprising. >> it is like the olympics, when they had the basketball games for the bronze medal. everyone is waiting for the champion of the gold medal game. but it is the only debate next week. it will drive some of the coverage. it will either continue the momentum that romney has after last night or it will be seen, if vice-president biden does well, it will be seen as the first step for the obama team to get its footing back. in the world we live in now, where everything is analyzed instantaneously, even before it happens, i think it is a meaningful event next week. >> it is important until the next presidential debat
